clinton will be the next president. in second place, way down, jay bush, jeb bush, he only had 6%. with the media already thinking that her fetus the old, dd says this is all the proof that you need. there's no question that they are more democratic than republican. but compared to the obama fervor. the collective thrill, it won't be quite that much more exciting, as it? >> look at what jay carney dead. he was a carny and she's got a mess on her hands. look at what clinton said. look at what she did. >> in what way? but what lott did she break? she may have acted poorly, but why? >> if that is the case, we don't know. and it is a serious issue. and so already we know a lot of cover-up. and she is just as bad as nixon or clinton. >> we want to bring in our all-stars. she has to actually understand. it looks at the foolish things. >> but where is the leadership in the republican leadership? what is the phrase that we use? tingly in the spine? and start the process. >> i'm not disagreeing with you. but maybe the republicans can just counter with somebody there. >> they are asking th
ousted president. >>> back here at home, clinton may not have yet made up her mind if she's running for president in 2016. but tim kane has. democratic national committee chairman announcing his support for mrs. clinton's potential 2016 presidential run. i announced his endorsement in south carolina. the senator saying, quote, she's the right person for the job. i'll be starting my fifth year in the senate on earring's day 2017. she's the partner i know i'll wants to be working with in the white house on all fronts. >> story about another former secretary of state, condoleeza rice, deciding not to deliver the commencement address at rutgers university in new jersey. in a statement, she says her involvement had become, quote, a distraction for the university communities. this comes after some students and faculty had held protests over her role in the iraq war. they say mrs. rice bore some responsibilities for the war as a member of the bush administration. the school originally planned to pay the former secretary $35,000 for her commencement speech. >>> arthel, in los angeles, the w
the extensive and heated hearings with secretary clinton. >> we are still not getting documents and we've asked for a subpoena and asked them to turn over things we've requested. when we will be get ought -- get all of the documents. secretary clinton now has a responsibility to make sure his state department is releasing all of the documents we requested. >> ands ayou know -- as you know, harry reid said this is an election year stunt and are there any mistakes the committee could make to give the impression the hearing is laced with political motive. >> here is what is interesting. it is obvious the president was trying to stall this coming out before 2012 and he knows this originated during an election year stunt from the white house. we are only asking for facts. they are not democrat or republican facts, they are just facts. released how this came about so the american people can solve this and move on. this could have been resolved a year ago but because they are slowly releasing documents or with holding documents we are still fighting the battle. let's get this out and move on. the acco
on the defensive, and raised fresh questions for hillary clinton as she gears up for 2016. >>> plus, harry reid in the hot seat as vulnerable senate democrats demand a vote on the k keystone pipeline. >>> and a big win for rick perry as toyota moves from california to texas. can he ride the record all the way to the white house? >>> welcome to "the journal editorial report" i'm paul gigot. fresh questions about the obama report to shake the narrative in the days following september 11, 2012, the u.s. mission in benghazi, libya, that killed four american diplomats. an e-mail showed a white house official played a role and susan race and her talk show appearances. ben rhodes writing in an e-mail two days before that the administration wanted her, quote, to underscore that these protests are rooted in an internet video, and not a broader failure of policy. joining the panel this week, "wall street journal" columnist and deputy editor dan henninger. matt kominski and columnist mary anastasia o'grady. matt, i thought all the e-mails were supposed to have been released long ago. how did this turn up
questions for hillary clinton as she gears up for 2016. >>> plus, harry reid in the hot seat as vulnerable senate democrats demand a vote on the k keystone pipeline. >>> and a big win for rick perry as toyota moves from california to texas. can he ride the record all the way to the white house? >>> welcome to "the journal editorial report" i'm paul gigot. fresh questions about the obama
looks into everything and gets folks like hillary clinton, who is at the center of this thing before, during and after, so that she can answer questions and if not voluntarily, then a subpoena. we need to have one committee that looks at everything, that is lineded with professionals, qualified members and the legal, military and intelligence worlds, so they can ask the questions we need so that we can hold folks accountable and find out the truth. >> among the questions remain, who briefed susan rice? we still don't know who did t t that, whether it was the white house or state department. you think this committee can get that answered? >> i absolutely do. i mean, let's put it this way. it is the responsibility of the obama administration that we now have this select committee that's being formed because of their actions, but more importantly, their inactions and not being forthcoming with information and documents and photos like they did on the bin laden raid. you saw all kinds of photos and documents and everything just spewing out of the white house, but nothing with this. it's
going on. we have all these things to get to. people are are talking about. the clintons overnight tim kaine became the late toast throw his support behind hillary clinton. this came a few days after bill clinton spoke at georgetown university and delivered a deflgsz of his economic record as president. to head off trouble on the left for hilary. >> how many times i have read from the left bitter criticism about what a slug i was to sign the balanced budget of ' 96 lowering the capital gains rate. i did it but we had the money to do it and it was the price i paid to e get the children's health insurance program and all that education stuff and i would do it again tomorrow in a heartbeat. >> so the legacy of bill clinton on economic issues and domestic issues, it plays a role in how the democratic party looks at him and i found that speech so interesting because when i look at the clinton years, i think the speech was two hours, which was short for bill clinton. i think you could make a case to be satisfying to the liberal base but he forged this alliance. talk about what happened in 20
in the clinton administration, had first laid out. this was quite a tough memo, and immediately created an enormous backlash by the corporate lobby, the white-collar defense bar, and that the prosecutors's implemented this memo from larry thompson, who was quite tough on corporate criminals, they overreached and it started to get rolled back over the decade, and that is one of the problems with how they lost these tools in learning how to investigate and prosecute crimes. host: when you say overreach, is it because they showed too much teeth in the matter? guest: yes, one of the seminal cases, well there were 2, 1 is arthur anderson. arthur andersen was the accounting firm that enabled and run, and it was a recidivist firm. it had health accounting fraudsters like waste management and sunbeam and had settled for notional amounts of money, almost the cost of doing business. in fact, they even thought of it as a cost of doing business, which is completely anathema to preventing corporate crime. intron, arthurof andersen partners destroyed documents, and the department of justice felt it h
or clinton to run for president in 2016 or as hillary rodham put it not a problem. >> that's really good: "fox & friends" this saturday morning. thanks so much for waking up with us. the word dude rears its ugly head once in a while. >> like ashton kutcher dude, where is my car. >> fast times at ridgemont high you don't expect to to hear it from the national security spokesperson when he is being interviewed on "special report" with bret baier. did you see the interview with bret baier. >> did you also change attacks to demonstrations in the talking points. >> maybe i don't remember. >> you don't remember. >> dude, this is like two years ago. >> dude, it is the thing that everybody is talking about. >> we are talking about the process of editing talking points. that's what bureaucrats do all day long. >> this is almost two years ago. first of all it was about 20 months ago. not even two years ago it has taken way too long for all of this in the first place. are you showing any respect for the four innocent americans who lost their lives and their families by not preparing for an intervi
. longtime friend of the clintons, no reference to democrat or democratic party in a state that is increasingly republican. i do not think any state has turned so sharply republican in recent times as arkansas, unless maybe west virginia for some of the same reasons. that ad was heavily criticized by democratic media advertising specialists, privately, not publicly. sophisticates perhaps are turned r said.what pryo you have to remember the arkansas electorate. in recent elections in the white evangelical christians have been close to 60% of the turnout. actually of appeal can make a difference. it is an emotional appeal but in heor's sense reveals what considers to be important or tries to sell that idea. up, aone poll has him long way between now and november. we will cover all the campaigns on the c-span network. steve from austin, texas, good morning. caller: good morning, thank you. rayburn,sk you, sam years ago, when he retired from sticker of the house he only had a few thousand dollars in his checking account. these guys are retiring as millionaires. are these guys a
likely presidential contender jeb bush have what it takes to topple democratic darling hillary clinton in 2016? >> i'm confident he can reach out to people who may at this point feel like the republican party doesn't listen to him. >> a new report says he's gaining momentum. we'll take a look. >> his organization gave more money to the minority community than others. >> the leader of the l.a. naacp resigned under fire after planning to honor clippers owner donald sterling. does the civil rights organization really serve the folks? >>> caution, you're about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >>> hi, i'm laura ingram, in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. benghazi and americans' distrust of the government. that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as speaker john boehner finally announces a select committee to investigate benghazi. a recent fox poll shows 61% of americans think the administration has been in cover-up mode on the issue. it's pathetic handling of the attack that killed four americans, has bred more distrust and more cyni
, hillary clinton, secretary of state during this, why not put mud on hillary clinton's tires ahead of 2016 when a lot of folks feel she'll be the presumptive nominee. >> it does seem it looms large. yes, benghazi is mentioned in passing but it's clear that the quotes that these republicans are taking issues with are about the broader range of protest happening in the region which were linked to a video, not a coordinated attack. do you think in light of that these attacks will hold water? >> it's an interesting thing, if you go out throughout the country, ronan, folks who subscribe to the conservative media, they are obsessed with this issue. the general public wake up worried about what happened in benghazi? probably not, probably more concerned about the economy and future holds for their children. when you take into the complicated dynamics that are the house gop and internal politics, you sort of see as to why boehner moved forward on this. i personally do not think this is going to be the end all, be all issue of the 2014 midterms, americans care a lot more about other things. nancy p
,rt with the oldced -- with the old ced plan, going back to clinton care, there is a lot of good stuff in the bill. let's build on that and a lot of bad stuff has been taken out, like the class act, more good news you never heard about. it has already been removed by the administration. sot people enjoy hating much. so, give credit where credit is due, and let's add a malpractice case to this bill. republicans are afraid to do that even though we could save tens of billions of dollars because they do not want the stigma of being associated with this bill. >> congressman? >> i could not disagree more. liability reform is something the republican house has been after for years. the missing link in the affordable care act was fixing tr, the liability system, and letting doctors talk to each other. >> where is the burgess bill on malpractice reform? >> i am glad you asked. >> that is not a bill, that is a book. >> you know this because you are a doctor, but here is the you heardl question, from the last panel repeal is not a viable alternative. millions of people have written contracts based on an exi
carney and others. hillary clinton testified the intelligence community had been the principle decider on everything the administration put out there. now you have mike morell saying we didn't emphasized the video stormy, you emphasized the video story. martha: she went on the sunday programs. lots more to talk about on this throughout the morning. steve hayes, thank you so much. bill: a federal judge striking down wisconsin's voter i.d. law. stating that showing a voter i.d. is discrimination and unconstitutional. the attorney general plans to appeal that decision. you will appeal based on what grounds? >> he clearly made a ruling that's contradictory to the law. the u.s. supreme court held that voter i.d. in some forms can be constitutional. it is in 20 states. this judge has said it can't be constitutional period because it makes it harder for latinos and african-americans to get a photo i am d. and therefore to vote. that's not what the law is. >> reporter: the u.s. district judge lynn adelman is the gentleman you are refer to. what does it take to get a photo i.d.? >> it's relativ
line from arizona. caller: in the big picture, i think the trend put all this on hillary clinton. god bless one's a died in benghazi, but the republicans have nothing else to bring to the table. i think it is that important. god bless all the active-duty personnel. god bless america. host: we want to hear from bill joining us from texas. caller: good morning to all the listeners. i want to state that this is a cover upon behalf of hillary clinton and the department of justice's failure to follow through on their investigation. thank you. host: carol makes this point. you can send in your tweet. our next call is jack, joining us this morning from new york. on the independent line. caller: i think it is very important that the american individuals were murdered on the national press doesn't much want to cover. the networks seem to be given surpassed. i think in honor of those people they should be covered and not covered up. host: thank you for your call. the benghazi story is on the websites, but not a hard copy of the washington edition of both of those newspapers. roll call does have
polls and considered a top contender to a hillary clinton run in 2016. but now a report says some republican fund raisers even some in the new jersey area with considering jumping ship from christie for jeb bush as the former florida governor looks at a bid. jeb is also getting some support from his brother. >> i hope jeb runs. and i think he would be a great president. i have no clue what's on his mind. we'll talk when he's ready. i notice he's moving around the country quite a bit. >> doing well in polls. >> yeah. that's fine. they don't mean anything. for him i can guarantee he's not looking at a poll to decide whether or not he wants to run. it's internal. he's checking his core. as he said publicly, i'm thinking about my family. and he knows full well what a run for the presidency can do on family. after all, he's seen his dad and brother run for president. so jeb, if you need advice, give me a call. >> okay. it is worth noting according to a new quinnipiac university poll, jeb easily leads the rest of the 2016 pack in his home state. that includes marco rubio who i think peo
headed by hillary clinton couldn't have done more to save the ambassador and others killed. >> what prevented you from doing that? >> it is not what they did it was what they didn't do. they didn't come forward with stronger requests for action. >> they also requested what ended up being bogus talking points which ended up being an anti islamic video. at the white house briefing the spokesman was bombarded with questions about this. >> he has been very open about this. >> in response to bogus partisan claims by reporters about what had happened to the compilation of talking points around the benghazi attack we produced that material publically which showed we were right and they were wrong. >> the white house is still struggling to explain the e-mail that recently surfaced as a court order is showing the discussion of the white house talking points. it specifically mentions blaming violence on an internet video. the white house maintained, jay carney maintained this has nothing to do with benghazi but somehow was grouped in with a number of e-mails that dealt specifically with bengh
, it was an attack. >> jones at the state department, and an e-mail that went to others, hillary clinton's chief of staff says she told the libyan ambassador september 12, 12:46 p.m., i told him the group that conducted the attack is affiliated with islamic extremists. would you agree or disagree with that statement? >> yes i would agree. the timing of it, i do not know. the content, yes. >> the scandal that is here, that some choose to ignore, a phony scandal, is the fact that the cia station chief, the military themselves. you have the person sitting front of us, who is the head of intelligence and he is looking at the intelligence. they come to the conclusion that it is austria -- sharia and then you have the state telling libyans. none of them think it is a video. none of them. the military, the cia, the cia station chief, the state department, all of them, the fact that the time, mr. chairman, the facts do not point to a video. that only comes from the white house. what was going on in the room, general? i were people were under attack and people were dying. what is the military doing? >> -
and former clinton special counsel davis. good to see you. >> hi, sean. >> hi, sean. >> we went round and round about whether they were alone and depends, we have been told a series of lies here and we can prove them. i'm asking you as a democrat, in light of what john adams wrote his wife that day in 1800, does any of this bother you? does any of this you find difficult to swallow, jay carney's propaganda? >> i don't share your belief, you're entitled to your belief -- >> they are called facts. >> got to let me finish. >> it's a fact. >> are you going to let me finish. >> go ahead. >> you had plenty of time in your opening. i don't believe jay carney lied and i have one fact you did not address. i read the 13 versions of the talking points beginning with version one that the cia said it drafted that was circulated and went back and forth over 13 different versions. >> i did, too. >> one sentence never changed in all 13 versions, fact, the cia wrote the words this was a spontaneous demonstration, that's their phrase, and then it ended with triggered by cairo protest. fact, that was wr
with stronger requests for action. >> that means then secretary of state hillary clinton has some splaining to do. but so does president obama. remember, he is the commander and chief. the military cannot move without his order. and he obviously didn't give it. why? the general is as confused as i am. >> we didn't know how long this would last when we became aware of the distress nor did we completely understand what we had in front of us. >> so that means that the attack could have been larger. the military didn't know. and forces didn't mobilize to save the people under siege? that's shocking. see, that's what this story is all about. the failure of the u.s. government to protect americans under fire in benghazi. and then after the fact trying to say oh the killers weren't organized terrorists. are we all getting this. but, again, the national media won't cover it. does it get any worse than that in our democracy? talking points is angry. the obama administration was completely derelict in the benghazi terror attack and was dishonest in the aftermath. and the national press doesn't give a
of the gun, or sitting around waiting for the state department and hillary clinton to call them up and say, do something? what did they actually do? >> we sent the predator drone overhead to -- >> did we do enough, general? >> sir, you're a professional -- you're retired. i know you care deeply about this. what was the mood in the room, the feeling? was it to save our people? >> it was desperation to be able to -- >> what? >> desperation there to gain situational awareness and to be able to do something to save people. >> did they actually do it? did they actually do it? three actions we talk about, a fast team is not even trained to engage in a fight. the other force is coming from the united states of america. we had assets there in europe. did they actually good to the sound of the gun? did they actually go into benghazi? >> no, sir, they did not. >> why not? >> basically, there was a lot of looking to the state department for what they wanted, and in deference to the libyan people and the sense of deference to the desires of the state department in terms of what they would like to have
, how would he stack up against a hillary clinton candidacy? in the battle for 201, which political dynasty would win. >>> and malaysia airlines releases its report on flight 370's disappearance. does it end with questions about the confidence of the response? well, far from it. >>> welcome to "the lead," coming to you live from the prairie chapel ranch in crawford, texas, better known as the home away from home for our 43rd president, george w. bush. i sat down with the former president here at what was once referred to as the western white house during his time in office. we had a wide-ranging conversation from everything from wounded warriors to his brother's jeb, to become the third president bush, to whether vladimir putin changed. mr. bush even weighed in on the racial controversy in the nba. our nation's veterans, as i said, they are the reason we are here today. it was right here at this ranch in the texas wild that mr. bush grappled so often with some of the toughest decisions of his presidency, decisions that would put american service men and women in harm's way. in the n
-- we'll see if the media still loves him. thank you both very, very much. >>> apparently bill clinton doesn't care much for the media's coverage when it comes to obamacare. are you kid canning me? at od, whatever business you're in, that's the business we're in. with premium service like one of the best on-time delivery records and a low claims ratio, we do whatever it takes to make your business our business. od. helping the world keep promises. peoi go to angie's listt for all kinds of reasons. to gauge whether or not the projects will be done in a timely fashion and within budget. angie's list members can tell you which provider is the best in town. you'll find reviews on everything from home repair to healthcare. now that we're expecting, i like the fact i can go onto angie's list and look for pediatricians. the service providers that i've found on angie's list actually have blown me away. find out why more than two million members count on angie's list. angie's list -- reviews you can trust. >>> bill clinton has a bone to pick with the media. >> policymaking tends to be dimly und
clinton is at 48%, rand paul 23, bloomberg 18 and jeb bush at 21. what is going on here? how much is based on these individuals? and how much is the fact that we're so sick and tired of nothing getting done in d.c. that we just blame everyone for it? >> i think clearly the american people have lost faith in d.c. as a city or a place where problems will get solved. they've lost faith for good reason. the polls may be more of just a lot of american voters just don't know those people. rand paul or jeb bush. a lot of americans haven't yet been introduced. if you were polling how many people have favorable views of barack obama back in 2006 he would also have low numbers. just because people didn't know who he was. the premise that the american people are sick and tired the of washington and the people who occupy washington has been true for four elections. obama has been successful in two presidential elections. definitely in 2008, less so in 2012. you can have some faith in that. but once he gets to washington he's largely been a disappointment especially for the independent voters in the mi
a few years ago. president clinton traveled to the airport in rwanda and issued what has come to be known as the clinton apology for failing to do more to stop the violence. later, president george w. bush famously wrote, quote, not on my watch, end quote, in the argin of a report on the rwanda genocide. no president wants an atrocity on their watch. i venture this much is true of president obama, and yet every indication points to the fact that the crisis currently unfolds in south sudan is headed to the way of rwanda. in fact, yesterday the u.n. high commissioner for human rights characterized south sudan as, quote, on the verge of catastrophe, end of quote, but with the stakes as high as they are, the situation is simply not being met with the urgency it demands. it is time for bold action. president obama, who so far has failed, he has failed on this issue, he should immediately dispatch former president george w. bush, who has a great reputation in africa, and former president bill clinton, who also has a good reputation in africa to help negotiate lasting peace and to co

satellite corp. 2013] on c-span, former president bill clinton speaks at georgetown university. then, "washington journal." followed by live coverage of the u.s. house. everybody says, how do you think these women came from such a very low rent part? the victorian era is so stratified. rich and the real -- thebaron achievers life and times of these women was in the most buccaneer times, after the civil war. we had rockefeller. the robber barons making a lot of money. i think it was easy for them because they had been running around with low rent con artists , now let's go with the big boys. they were beautiful and they were tough and they were driven. they were driven for power and individualism, but they could have been courtesans, they could have kept in a fine manner if they wanted. they pushed for their and dependence and women's independence. -- independents and women's independence. two little remembered victorian sisters changed the course of american women's rights and american history. sunday on q&a. itself is not unusual. similar streets have popped up in other cities. beau
increase in minimum wage. president clinton's economic advisor gene sperling, who just left this administration, the obama administration, back in 1998 wrote a memo to president cline continue when a similar -- president clinton when a similar proposal was being made. now the harkin bill that we're going to vet on shortly proposes to raise the minimum wage 40%. this was back in 1978 gene sperling writing to president clington on a proposed increase of the minimum wage by 41%. the same sort of proposal. so this is what mr. sperling wrote: "your entire economic team believes that this approach is too aggressive and are concerned that senator kennedy's proposal" -- it was senator teddy kennedy's proposal back in 1978 -- "could approve damaging to the employment prospects of low-skilled workers." again, that's whatd c.b.o., the congressional budget office said about this bill. he goes on to say "as well as to the general macroeconomic performance of the economy." so what are our friends across the aisle proposing we do when the economy grew at .1% this last quarter? well, to adm
, for which i might say i was made a lot of fun of when i took office. why is bill clinton spending all this time on the farm program? a presidenthat does. but this is really, really important. anduse it affects people, it determines whether your purpose can be advanced. , i just picked three policies. to talk about americorps and student service because this is the 20th anniversary of it, but i think its impact, its return on taxpayer dollars and the number people it mobilizes, the fact that we have had far more people serve -- we had more people serve in americorps in the first five years than in the history of the peace corps. the main thing that frustrated peoplethat until actually needed them, a lot of people didn't know much about the americorps programs. but i decided not to do that. i wanted to talk about three policies today that i discussed in the first talk a year ago. the implementation of our economic strategy in 1993, anchored by the budget. , whichfare reform bill was highly controversial at the time, and remains so, and our efforts to achieve a comprehensive peace in the
't agree. >> back it up. >> you say no. >> i'm going to back it it up right now. hillary clinton, hopefully, got willing, polls show today would win and would take over the electorates and has a lead over jeb bush and the other g.o.p. potential candidates in 2016. we're going to hear about benghazi 247 every network. and i agree with howard that the perception is the american people have moved on and cared more about the clippers and a gay who died on a gurney in oklahoma. >> you guys are so absolutely wrong. >> i do agree with that. >> i am surprised with you. >> i just said i agree with you on that point. >> you are an obama person, you work for the "the washington post." you work for cnn. you know how much air time all of cnn has. you know how much air time they have in the morning. two hour blocks. they did not run this story because it reflects poorly on barack obama. that's the fact. you should know it and you should say it. >> listen, you understand first of all that the press doesn't always cover the most important stories. >> no, i don't understand that. >> i am not defending that.
the so-called labor participation rate. so what did president clinton do when his economic advisers said don't do it, mr. president? perhaps it is good politics, it will hurt the economy and it will put people out of work. and president clinton, to his credit decided not to pursue that particular 41% increase in minimum wage. but i mention that is a sad contrast with the current situation. president obama, seeing his favorability ratings of the lowest they have been since he became president is trying to change the object. we all know that a massive minimum wage increase can be a job killer. and they want to ignore the congressional budget report. and they want us to believe that they will have little or no effect and maybe would have a positive effect and this includes america's businesses being no better and they started washing dishes and they started at the bottom and work their way up because they could find a job and they could get their hand on the first rung of the economic ladder. and they understand how businesses work and they understand the negative consequences of this bad p
roth. we were so passionate about it, madeleine may remember, that president clinton joked that nato must be offering to move the headquarters to wilmington, delaware -- because -- no, i'm serious. it was -- do you remember that's what he said at the time of the official vote. but you know, all these years later, there are some who look at russia's aggression in ukraine and say -- maybe we should not have extended security guarantees to poland, romania, bulgaria and the baltic states. but i think it shows we had to extend that guarantee, because we reject and continue to reject, have rejected the notion of a sphere of influence built on the backs of the people who deserve freedom -- freedom that we always supported and that we believe is as vital today as it was then. and let's be clear -- the current crisis born in the enlargment of nato and the eu 15 yeras ago has nothing to do with -- 15 years ago has nothing to do with the enlargement of nato. it was born in the kremlin. it was born in putin's mind. it has nothing to do with the fact that we expanded nato. and here's another deba
% proposed increase in minimum wage. president clinton's economic adviser gene spurling had just left this administration the obama administration back in 1998 wrote a memo to president clinton on a similar proposal being made to raise the minimum wage at that time 41% so now the harkin bill that we are going to vote on here shortly proposes to raise the minimum wage 40%. so this is back in 1998. james burling writing to president clinton on a proposed increase of the minimum wage by 41%. so for all practical purposes the same sort of proposal. so this is what mr. spurling wrote to president clinton. he said your entire economic team believes that this approach is too aggressive and our concern that senator kennedy's proposal and senator teddy kennedy's proposal back in 98 could prove damaging to the employment prospects of low-skilled workers. again, that is what the congressional budget office has said about this bill. and he goes on to say as well as to the general macroeconomic performance of the economy. so what are our friends across the aisle proposing we do when the economy gr

bush's intellect was slapped around every day. the majority leader called him a loser. bill clinton in particular was impeached. you saw the way bill clinton was treated in many respects. forget the way they're look at now. i don't think any of them had an easy time. >> he went on to say this antigovernment attitude is completely newç just because we have an african-american president. we did reach out to his office and haven't heard back for a comment. >> we've got lots more news to tell you about. once again we turn to heather nauert. >> got news now to bring you at nine minutes after the hour. we break in with breaking news that came in overnight. prison officials try a new drug cocktail to kill an inmate but the execution is botched. the inmate died more than 43 minutes later of a heart attack. now all executions in the state of oklahoma are on hold. the man exploded after the first of three injections and then the execution stopped. some witnesses say the convicted murderer then tried to get up and talk. pretty gruesome description there. >>> witnesses say he looked likeç "
.w. bush, george w. bush, supported the mission of the ex-im bank, as did bill clinton. all these presidents were staunch supporters of capitalism and the ex-im bank. listen to what president reagan said when he signed re-authorization, a bill that was re-authorized almost unanimously in 1986. quote, this sends an important signal to both our exporting community and foreign suppliers, that american exporters will continue to be able to compete vigorously for business throughout the world. perhaps an even more conservative voice, former vice president cheney said, in 1997, some of my fellow conservatives on the hill may have a philosophical problem about the fact that the bank -- with the -- problem with the fact that the bank is a government agency. but if they consider the success of its lending programs, it would be difficult for them to object on budgetary grounds. for every $1 put into the ex-im, there's been a $20 return to the u.s. economy. and further, again, same speech, vice president cheney, ex-im bank is remarkably effective at helping create jobs, opportunities f
clinton said a decision would come before the end of 2011. in march, 2013, president clinton told all of the senate republicans in our caucus where he was invited to come and visit with us about anything he wanted to talk about, one of the questions that came up, that a decision would be made on this pipeline would be made before the end of 2013. that was 13 months ago. and yet, no decision. so as has been stated by my colleagues on good friday afternoon of this year, the state department announced an indefinite delay in the comment period on the pipeline project. so it appears unlikely that president obama will make a decision any time in the near future, if ever. this indefinite delay is mind-boggling, considering all the advantages of this pipeline. granting the permit for the pipeline will create thousands of jobs directly and indirectly. it will provide more than 800,000 barrels of canadian oil daily from a friendly economic partner. rejection of the pipeline permit will not affect canada's decision to develop these oil resources, because, you know, they are smarter than we are.
